Mark your calendars. There are all kinds of people currently on the injured list in WWE and the problem seems to be getting worse. With so many people out of action, there are a lot of spots available for other people to fill in those gaps. You can only do that so many times though, especially when the injured names are coming back. Now we know when one such name will be returning.
According to Fightful.com, an internal WWE injury list has Jeff Hardy returning on January 1. Hardy has been out of action since April with a knee injury, which forced he and his brother Matt to vacate the SmackDown Tag Team Titles. In his absence, Matt has appeared sporadically, mainly teaming with a variety of partners in house show matches and chasing the 24/7 Title.
Matt and Jeff have returned a few times before. Check out one of their most famous ones:
Opinion: That’s still a long way off, but you can never tell what to expect when someone is out with a knee injury. Those are some serious cases and a lot of the time they can be a lot worse than they seem. Jeff is still going to be out of action for over six months and that’s a long time for anyone. He isn’t going to have long left in the ring no matter what so missing that kind of time is never a good thing.
What do you see for Jeff when he gets back? Should he wrestle on his own or with Matt? Let us know in the comments below.
